    Tuftee To Grayshirt

    In an interview in Thursday's QC Times Ethan Tuftee stated that he will be attending Scott Community College for the fall semester and then enroll at Iowa State as a grayshirt for the spring semester. He is currently rehabbing a knee injury.

    Also saw that Pleasant Valley QB Brett Bueker will be attending ISU as a walk on.

    Given the rehab, this sounds like a good decision for both Tuftee and the program. It also frees up a spot if the staff is still working on someone.

    Re: Tuftee To Grayshirt

    Grayshirts enroll for less than the "full time status" course load. At ISU, they enroll in 11 or fewer credits. This way they can take classes while also getting into the weightroom and being with the team but not counting against their eligibility. The "5 years to play 4" clock doesn't start until an athlete is enrolled full time.

    I believe Kurtis Taylor was also a grayshirt to bulk up in the weightroom. It also gives athletes a chance to acclimate to college course loads if academics are a concern.

    Re: Tuftee To Grayshirt

    I forget, do they go on scholarship 2nd semester, or do they have to pay their own way all year of the gray shirt year? I know they just cant do certain things 1st semester, since the season is going on.

    Im sooo happy i went to Iowa State and didnt end up at Scott CC. Scott makes DMACC look like Harvard.

    Are you sure about that?

    I thought it was when they came to ISU just like any freshman but couldn't practice or do anything with the team but lift weights. They do not get a scholarship the first year but the first year doesn't count against them. Its a way to get kids on campus, if all the spots are taken up. If he does greyshirt he really will be a part of the class of 09.

    Re: Tuftee To Grayshirt

    They can use the weightroom I believe....you're right, they don't practice or any of that, but nobody can stop them from hanging out with the guys, building team chemistry off the field, etc. Essentially they're restricted from official "team functions". They pay their own way and it doesn't count against their eligibility.

    I think they can be on scholarship spring semester since that is technically the start of the new football season and fall was the end of the preceding one. Usually is how it works for the grayshirts.

    Grayshirts actually can enroll full time at the semester and be put on full scholarship at that point. They can then participate in a spring practice before they start in the fall. When they report in the fall, they still have 5 to play 4 so they can redshirt if they wish to.

    Greyshirts pay their own way while they are a greyshirt.
